wow... for me this is kind of an "aha" moment. As a rank amateur musician (hand me my old guitar) I've naturally been curious how so many of these combinations work, and unlocking them is a wonderful thing.

I agree that JG's statement about the blues in E is ironic- when you push past all the songs they did in G-C-D or C-F-G, a great many center around very similar riffs in E as you mentioned - wouldn't these also include Don't Ease, Althea, Brown-Eyed Women and others. (edit - also New Speedway Boogie, New Minglewood Blues...)

I don't know about everyone else - but I love these musical discussions (esp. words like "tonicization". Much gratitude for your posts.

i agree. I just wish I knew what they meant. I've been meaning to learn music but I just never get around to it. It would definitely clarify more of whats going on, but its all so cosmic that maybe im better in my nebula.
